The Panasonic Lumix G1 was the first digital mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. It was released in 2008. Prior to the release of the Panasonic G1, all digital interchangeable lens cameras were DSLRs. Panasonic was the first company that dared to release a mirrorless ILC and so the G1 became the forefather of all modern mirrorless cameras. Therefore, the Panasonic Lumix G1 made history. But is it still a usable camera today?
The SLR Magic 8mm F4 is a compact and lightweight ultra-wide angle lens for the Micro Four Thirds system. The lens was released in march 2017 and although it costs only 350$ it is built out of metal. The SLR Magic 8mm F4 was designed to be used with camera drones. However, in this review, I am going to check if it is also a good option for “normal” cameras.

My review of the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 25mm 1:1.2 PRO, the first lens in Olympus new F/1.2 Pro lineup. I tested the Olympus 25mm 1:1.2 regarding sharpness, flares, bokeh, and CAs.
A sharpness comparison between the Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm F/1.2 Pro and the Olympus M.Zuiko 12-40mm F/2.8 Pro. The Olympus 25mm F/1.2 is the first lens of Olympus new series of F/1.2 primes. Design and features are similar to other Olympus Pro lenses. There is a good chance, that someone who is interested in the Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm F/1.2 Pro already owns the Olympus M.Zuiko 12-40mm F/2.8 Pro. Therefore, I am going to compare the two lenses in this article. Usually prime lenses are sharper than zooms, however, the Olympus 12-40mm F/2.8 is already a very sharp lens. Will the Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm F/1.2 Pro be able to surpass it or is it “just” 2,5 stops faster?
